For everyone on these forums-Thank you so much! I have been lurking here for months, spending hours upon hours looking at everyone's advice. I'm here to say I feel I have finally got the natural curls I have wanted since starting my transition in March 09.

I hope my picture comes through(I'm new to posting avatars!)
I have been through hell and back trying to get natural curls through transitioning slowly. I almost gave up in about the spring of 2010 and did a big chop, but I hung in there. I almost gave up, when I tried to dye my hair and messed it up so that it was damaged and orange, but I hung in there. I'm here to give encouragement to transitioners who do not want to BC and those who did-keep trying the things outlined on these boards, as well as Curly Nikki's blog, and you'll get it. I also searched and watched countless youtubes over the past year.
I feel so grateful, and so FREE, that I had to come on here to say thanks. I have achieved a wash and go AND a light brown/blonde color on my 3c ethnic hair all with organic products!

Here is what I have realized is my HG:
Aubrey Organics J.A.Y. shampoo(made my hair strong and even more curly, I think. Works well with color treated, dry hair)-I wash about once a week, cowash every third day or so.

I comb this through in the shower.

This was trial and error, and I almost took it back to Whole Foods, but again, patience won out and I can't live without it now.

The crunch/jerri curl look put me off until I read about "scrunching the crunch" out!
[buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Gloss-Pomade-p-251.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-gloss-pomade]Kinky Curly Gloss pomade[/buylink], Coconut oil, and Shea butter-put a combo of this on my ends when I get out of shower.
For my color-I use Naturtint Honey Blonde from Vitamin shoppe. I love this color, and I didn't even need to bleach my dark brown hair to achieve it!

I am available for anyone who needs help and encouragement. You won't regret going natural!
